Trumpeter shares photos of its kit contents.
Named after Josef Stalin, the IS tanks were a series of Soviet heavy armor that were based on the KV-13. A variant was the IS-2 which was first deployed with the 11th Guards Heavy Tank Regiment in April of 1944. Improvements were made following the Second World War and by 1954 was rebuilt as the IS-2M. It featured a modernized cooling and oil system, increased ammunition carrying capacity, as well as new communications systems and an improved driverís periscope. Other features such as front tool bins and skirts were added.

Trumpeterís Soviet JS-2M Heavy Tank Ė Late (05590) contains over 300 parts in plastic, photo-etched and copper materials. It features details such as multi-slide molded lower hull and turret, as well as independent track links. The model stands at 270mm (L) by 220mm (W) when built.

A JS-2M didn't necessarily have one.

Doesn't mean we wouldn't all want a Duska if it were possible. On the model, I meant.
